Recommended Posts

Github Issue #3451

https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/issues/3451

 

Application Version
Cura 3.2.1

Platform
Win 10 Pro, 64 bit

Display Driver
NVIDIA GeForce 840M

Printer
Custom printer

Steps to Reproduce
Select a dual extrusion printer and generate the gcode.

Actual Results
After the last extrusion toolpath of one extruder, the extruder will stop on top of the 3D print, waiting for the other extruder to reach the Initial Printing temperature, this could be a 5 seconds wait, and will make a little hole on the print.

Expected results
Move the extruder to a secure place, away from the print.
If a Prime Tower is selected the waiting position could be inside the tower. For a Ooze Shield the position could be xx cm from outside of the shield.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
